Ingredients

2
boiling potatoes, diced
1-1/2 c
diced onion
1-1/2 c
diced celery
1/4 c
plus---2 tablespoons butter
1 qt
water
1-1/2 Tbsp
fish base--i use minor's (makes good flavor!)
1 c
whipping cream
1/4 tsp
dried dill
1/4 tsp
dried thyme
1/4 c
flour
8 oz
firm white fish fillet, such as haddock or cod cut into bite-sized pieces
6 oz
shrimp
6 oz
scallops
salt and pepper to taste

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a large pot of simmering water, boil the potatoes just until tender. Drain and set aside.
2
In a large, heavy-bottomed saucepot, saute the diced onion, carrot and celery in 2 tablespoons butter until vegetables are softened, stirring constantly to avoid coloring. Add the water and bring to a boil.
3
Reduce to a simmer and whisk in the fish base. Add the potatoes, cream, dill, thyme and pepper.
4
In a separate pan (what, another one?!?), melt the remaining 1/4 cup butter over medium heat. Add the flour, stirring constantly, and cook for 2 to 4 minutes to make a roux.
5
Whisk the roux into the chowder and continue to cook until thickened over medium high heat, approximately 2 to 4 minutes after the mixture has reached a boil.
6
Add the fish, shrimp and scallops to the chowder just before serving, and simmer until the seafood is fully cooked, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
